10:15 am
golden globes and deservedly so is "the revenant" starring leonardo dicaprio and he and the director are both nominated. we talked about this making this film and in in the end it was all worth it >> there's some sequences in this movie that i think are ground breaking cinematically. i mean, what you want as an audience member is to submerge yourself in a completely different reality. >> in "the revenant" that reality is the wilderness of the american west in the 1820s. leonardo dicaprio plays hugh glass, a battered frontiersman seeking revenge against a fellow explorer, the film shot authentically under brutal winter conditions. what about it grabbed you? >> the director. >> yeah, i keep saying -- >> that's oscar winning director alejandro inreceiptu who last year wouldn't academy award for
10:16 am
he's in the conversation again for "revenant." >> we know why leonardo picked the movie because of you and why did you think leo was the right man to play hugh glass? >> i thought and now as a fact i know that there was not a better choice. i think he's an amazing baht body of work, a testimony of how great and accurate it is. without somebody as leo so brave and encouraging, i needed a partner, i didn't need just a great actor. >> was there any point, leo, where you're wearing 100 pounds of fur standing in a frozen river shaking with the flu. >> of course. >> where you looked at him and said what the hell are we doing? >> i think everyone said that on a daily basis, the entire cast. >> at least. >> pretty much. >> i'm an admiration of his ambition, the fact that every single day he strove for this authenticity and he was relentless about getting it.

10:18 am
whether this is the year leonardo dicaprio finally wins his oscar. >> these things are something that you know is ultimately beyond your control. it's in other people's hands now. >> what would it mean to you though to win best actor? >> i think anyone appreciates those types of things for sure, of course, you know, to be recognized by your peers, but i know it's a cliche, but the truth is it's ultimately not why you do these films. you do them because, you know, if you love the art form and cinema to me is the great modern art form, you can look back one day and say i -- i did that piece of work, and i -- i gave it everything i could while i was there, and -- and if you have enough of those later hon in life, you're a happy artist. >> meanwhile, this guy's got a shelf full of trophies from last year alone. do you expect to get some more attention this year at the oscars? >> i share what leo says correctly, you know. i think that recognition and
10:19 am
think is always a great thing that in a way, you know, you celebrate because it's a celebration. world you live with a lot of people but actually that's a consequence. it's not a meaning. i think we gave it all, and we are very proud and happy about if. >> we really did. >> no argument there. we kind of really did. >> leo is having flashback. >> i agree. >> we really went for it. >> yes, they did.

10:45 am
breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. when you make a pb&j with smucker's, that's the difference between ordinary everyday and exquisitely delicious in an everyday sort of way.

station, the furthest any astronaut had to go to make improvised repairs on solar panels carrying high levels of voltage and dan was helping scott on the other end of the arm with every dangerous move. >> and south korea's first and only astronaut made history in 2008 when she boarded a spacecraft bound for the snashio and some that have is a dramatic re-enactment and the return to earth wasn't so smooth. the capsule veered off course and land 260 miles away in kazakhstan where nomadic shepherds thought they were seeing aliens land on the earth. good morning. >> watching the series with my 1-year-old fascinated with anything space and he had so many questions starting off with all the challenges you face. scott, talk to us about that mission where you're there trying to fix the solar panels arm. extraordinary day.
